SCHEDULE, ACCOMODATIONS & ACTIVITIES
A weekly schedule is given to guardians to accommodate for appropriate attire and supplies for activities. Generally, campers will need sunscreen, swimming trunks/suit, a towel, change of clothes, snacks and medication.
Camp assignment can be accommodated based on needs and interest of the child.
